I'm not going to lie, this post of your made me literally laugh out loud. Just a thought here. Someone stated earlier in the thread that real "gamecocks" don't have combs or the sack because those things are cut off by the people who fight the birds. In my opinion, that makes the birds look HORRIBLE, but perhaps you'd consider greatly reducing the size of the "sack" and giving it an irregular shape like you mentioned earlier. This might help with the problem, and it may even make the image look more like a "real" gamecock. But I definitely wouldn't want it totally removed, because I agree with you that it is a recognizable part of a rooster.

When I hear the editing suggesting and try to merged them with the drawing you presented, I came up with this...It still keeps the sack too...






Those teeth made me LOL. I like the overall shape.

If we ever changed our logo to anything else I would be disappointed...But, if we did, I would prefer the design I saw on this sight last year with the palmetto tree and cresent emblem....In other words our state flag but with garnet back ground coloring.....

Default Gamecock Conceptual Logo

Why don't you try an updated tweak of our current logo. Something like Miami did during Marino days. Not the new Miami one now, the early 90's one.

What do you think of this sketch so far? I am going to vectorize it and clean it up a bit in the meantime, add some color, etc.


That might make a good logo for Ball State.

I'll see myself out.

As you can see by some of the responses, Cola, you better be prepared for the "leather-helmet" crowd to hate on anything suggested.

As far as the OP goes, the concept reminds me of the Louisville Cardinal. And in no way represents what I think of a "Fighting Gamecock" to be. The head concept just doesn't cut it for me.
Not to say that I like the spur and claw that much either, but if I had to choose, I'd take the spur and claw over any concept drawing of the head.
I think some animal lovers would have an issue with that "spur" and claw. Technically, that's not the spur, it's a gaff or razor type blade that is banded to the roosters leg for fighting. I'm sure there are folks out there who would be offended.

Yeah, that is perfectly fine. I know having people see something as a replacement to a logo we have had for the entire duration of our athletic history isn't going to be well received by all. Heck, it's tough for me even when designing it!

I may go back to the drawing board and see what I can do with a full body logo...but incorporate this head in there somehow.

And the nutsack is hanging just below the pecker.

BTW you do outstanding work. Your Redskins and Gaffney helmet concept work were fantastic.
